Malus Pink Perfection
- Flower colour: Pink
- Leaf colour: Green
- Growth habit: Upright-spreading
- Fruit colour: Yellow / Orange
While most crab-apples have single-flowers, Malus Pink Perfection is unusual for having double-flowers - the flowers are made up of a much larger number of petals, with an almost fabric-like texture. This gives the blossom greater intensity, similar to the ornamental flowering cherries.
The tree is of medium-size, with an upright spreading form. We sometimes have dwarf patio forms of this variety.

(Approx. girth: 6/8).
Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.
Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
